The Preston Rotary Club hasn't let the pandemic stand in the way of its community efforts.
The main focus has been supporting local organisations, including Thrive, CentrePeace and the Paignton Community Larder.
Also, funds have recently been provided to the Louis Cary Children’s Ward at Torbay Hospital.
Instead of sending each other Christmas cards, Club members also contributed £665 to Paignton Salvation Army for their Christmas Appeal.
During half- term a group of Young Carers, one of the causes the Club helps, were taken to Battlefield Live at Churston.
Also before Lockdown, members delivered food hampers and presents to local schools for CentrePeace, and were also helping Paignton Community Larder deliver Christmas boxes to families.
President of Preston Rotary Club, Roger Tisdall said: “We have been unable to raise funds as usual, but used our reserves, backed by additional members donations members to help the local community."
